Mini Crop today at Turtle Soup

Today is mini crop day at Turtle Soup so be sure to check out all the fun challenges the Design team has cooked up today. Today I challenged members to disguise a card like a layout -- Basically to convert a layout sketch into a card :D To start I choose this sketch from PageMaps

Then made this card based on the sketch.

Hope you hop in and join the fun!

Our Time- Kreaxions and NAS reveal


Check out  this super fun layout of me (that's right I actually have a picture of me  on a layout!) and my son.  For this layout, I used this week's Sketch from Nuts about Sketches! The sketch called for lots of circles which were a breeze to cut out with the kreaxions Circle Cutter!  I thought the half circle at the top of the layout looked a little plain, so I "dressed" it up a bit but using the circle templates and the 903 punch.  I then added the doily behind the flower using the star template and the 903 punch with the "A" inserts.

Products used:
Nuts about Sketches Sketch 339
Fancy Pants Burlap and Bows
Kreaxions #903 (alone and with "A" inserts)
Kreaxions Circle Cutter
Circle cutter1
Kreaxions Star template
Star Stencil
Kreaxions Circle Stencils

Morning Glory Pool

Love the sketches from Nuts about Sketches.  I love how Shawn incorporates multiple photos on each sketch! This weeks sketch (#336) included room for 5 pictures on a 1 page layout!  I switched out 2 of the photos for journaling blocks and of course still working on the Yellowstone trip album from 2012.  Hmmm that leaves me Yellowstone 2013, Washington DC 2013, Daulphin Island 2014 to do.... better get scrapping!

Just kreaxions DT reveal

I created this super cute card for this month's Just Imagine DT Reveal.  I used the star template with the #919 punch to create the doily.  I then used the Kreaxions circle cutter to cut out the inside of the doily.  I traced the oval stencil to add as a backdrop for the card sentiment.  I used the leftover from punching a border with the #919 punch and then added 2 of the "crosses" from the punch to make the flower in the bottom right corner!
